Volkswagen Vento Review

Volkswagen Vento has been launched in the aim of giving a direct competition to the market leader Honda City.Vento is available as both petrol and diesel engine options and has five variants namely Vento Trendline M/T (Petrol), Highline M/T (Petrol), Highline A/T (Petrol), Trendline M/T (Diesel) and Highline M/T (Diesel).It features a 1.6 litre engine.Its Highline A/T (Petrol) variant is packed with six speed automatic transmission.The remaining variants of Vento are packed with five speed manual transmission.Let us see in detail below about the features of Vento.

Design and Comfort


Volkswagen Vento is endowed with a simple,handsome design and a stylish luxurious look.The front end of Vento features chrome highlights on the chin, lower grille design and round foglamps and at the rear side it features a huge boot that looks so big.It also holds a bit old-fashioned tail-lamp design.It adopts the Polo’s MacPherson strut front suspension and non-independent trailing arm rear setup which was modified to adjust for the wider track.Its steering has been made heavier than Polo by fine-tuning the software on its electric setup.It features consistent panel gaps but its disappointing feature is that the way the doors shut with an unsatisfying and deep crash and obviously it reflects at the light build of the Vento.


Vento’s interior features a classy and understated cabin.It also holds high quality silver accents but the quality of plastics used is of low standard.The switches present are solid and tactile.The tiny buttons on the console present on the highline variants for the climate control seems to be out of sync with the other chunky looking switchgear. The absence of an external boot release is also an inconvenient factor.The front seats are extremely comfortable with good under-thigh support.The rear seats have lots of legroom and headroom and also has a less swoopy roof line.The Highline variant of Vento in addition possess power mirrors, climate control, 15-inch alloys ABS, front airbags, CD/MP3 player, remote locking and adjustable driver’s seat height.There’s a big cubbyhole in the centre console, one centre armrest and the most useful glovebox .

Engine Capacity and Performance

Volkswagen Vento is available in both petrol and diesel versions.Both the versions are feature a 1.6 litre angine.The Petrol version of Vento has a displacement of 1598cc and generates a power of 105PS at 5250rpm.It produces a maximum torque of 153Nm at 3800rpm.Two of its petrol variants are packed with five speed manual transmission and its Highline A/T (Petrol) variant alone is packed with six speed automatic transmission.

Vento’s diesel variant also has a displacement of 1598cc and churns out a power of 105PS at 4400 rpm.The maximum torque produced by the diesel variants of Vento is 250Nm at 1500-2500rpm.Both of its diesel variants are packed only with five speed manual transmission.Tha amazing feature of the Vento’s diesel engine is its broad torque spread.No doubt,the highly powerful engines of Vento surely plays a vital role in offering great performance.

Mileage and Fuel Economy

The petrol variants gives a vento mileage of 15kmpl and Vento’s diesel variants offer a mileage of 20kmpl.It possess a very good fuel economy and has a fuel tank capacity of 55 litres.The fully filled fuel tank makes the car to move up to 830 kilometres.


Volkswagen Vento features cast aluminium alloy wheels and large size tyres.The large sized tyres of Vento greatly helps in controlling the car and also reduce the rate of skidding.Vento’s Trendline variants are fitted with 14 inches steel wheels with full wheel caps and a 14 inches steel spare wheel.Similarly,its diesel variants are fitted with 15 inches alloy wheels along with a 14 inches steel spare wheel.


Volkswagen Vento comes with ventilated disc brakes at the front end wheels and drum brakes at the rear end wheels.The anti-lock brakes are available only in Highline variants.

Ride and Handling

The quality of ride in Vento is not as good as expected.At low speeds,it offers sophisticative rides and also absorbs the bumps well but it will not offer such comfortable rides at high speeds.It is packed with an inconvenient suspension.As like Polo, the Vento’s ride is not as flat or consistent as we would have liked.The electric steering also does not exactly blow up with feel.The longer wheelbase and the wider rear track give stability to the Vento through the corners but it will not offer quick direction changes and on the limit the Vento understeers strongly.It features light steering, soft clutch and easy gearshifts which makes it a pleaure to drive in traffic.

Vento colours

The available Vento colours are Candy White,Flash Red,Terra Beige,Shadow Blue,Reflex Silver and finally Deep Black.

Volkswagen Vento Specifications

"The prime specs of Volkswagen Vento are listed here. The overall length, width of the car should give you an idea about parking space it require. The ground clearance (lowest part of the car to the ground) will give you the measure of water wading capability and confidence of Vento's capability to run over potholes and speed breakers. However GC (ground clearance) won't tell everything. Other important factors like approach angle, breakover angle and departure angle is required to assess the cars' ability to run in rained indian roads and light off road tracks.Engine specs of Vento are also listed here. With the power (in bhp) and torque (Nm) figures the most important ratios - power to weight ratio of Vento and torque to weight ratio. The displacement (in cc) is the measure of cubic capacity of the engine.

Problems with Volkswagen Vento

By Jai Prakash

Good: Excellent performance

Bad: Starting trouble

I have faced lot of problems with Volkswagen Vento car. So after experiencing it, I would not suggest anybody to prefer Vento. Its look and style along with comfort is just ok. Talking about the mileage, it is really appreciable. The only drawback of the car is its starting trouble. While starting the vehicle in the morning, it always offers starting trouble which makes me very much irritating. With lot of problems, I am using the vehicle and so please be alert to choose the vehicle before selecting the car.

The Car I like Very Much

By Saroj

Good: Comfortness, Riding and handling is good

Bad: Poor Fuel Efficiency

Volkswagen Vento looks very decent and stylish. An elegantly designed vehicle offers good comfort with its easy suspension on bumpy rides. It is very suited for heavy city traffic roads with its smooth pick up, smooth power transmission which makes great fun to drive. The best features for me includes driving, handling, performance etc. Anyway it needs to improve engine refining, noise from engine. Comparing with Sunny, SX4, City, Verna, Verito Volkswagen Vento is best.
